Up until now, the lucky gamers that have the Collector’s Edition of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft have been able to enjoy the extra “Battleground” map which sets players in an abandoned town scattered with rubble from ruined buildings and features indoor and outdoor areas with multi-level vantage points. Starting on Thursday, June 7, the map will be made available for free download to everyone on Xbox Live Marketplace.
Multiplayer map pack #1 and #2 are also currently available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 400 Microsoft Points per pack.
